What sway bar kit and why???

I was going to go all in with a torque arm and watts, but now I'm getting a Tesla I need to pinch pennies. I'm ordering a sway bar kit tonight. I'm an occasional auto crosser and track day guy, but the 2012 GT will still be an occasional daily driver so I don't need spherical rod ends/all race set up. The car already sports koni yellows, K springs, adjustable panhard bar, castor camber plates, and lower control arm relocation brackets. Tonight I'm ordering some lower control arms and a sway bar kit. With my above mentioned details what kit do you recommend for the sway and why?

Thank you all.

I'd probably just swap the front with a BMR or Whiteline adjustable one. The rear is actually already too stiff.

I was thinking that, but I'm getting the dreaded clunk from the end links so I'm looking at replacing the entire unit. Leaning toward the Eibach that is front and rear adjustable.

Eibach makes the Ford Racing and Steeda sway bars. Whiteline makes its own and RTRs sway bars. They are all excellent choices. You will do your best with an adjustable front with 3 or 4 positions. I went with Whiteline front and love it. I went with RTR rear as same as Whiteline but has better hardware to connect and found it as open box item on eBay - mine is a daily driver and parts like this will get dings so a scratch means nothing to me. BTW, Whiteline offers very good customer service and poor installation instructions. RTR has yet to reply to my questions... All their products are made by a few different companies with heavy markup. $$$. Research and buy from the real manufacturer...

Another good source for sways would be Stranos, and they will make suggestions though they need a week or so to reply. They make good suggestions. Strano Performance Parts - Parts Catalog

Sounds like you already have a helluva nice set up but use the search feature on here cuz there's a few people who have lots of experience and really know their stuff regarding suspension set up. I've found that they don't mind answering pm's either, this site rocks.

Thank you for the help guys. I went with the Eibach with only adjustable front. I'll use the konis to help dial in/out under steer and over steer. I looked at Sam's parts but his site states his rear bars don't work with other manufacturers lower control arm relocation brackets (I have BMRs). I was going to go with the Ford Racing Part but that bar is 35mm vs 36mm for Eibach, which is weird given that Eibach makes the Ford part. I ordererd some nice BMR lower control arms too.
